Continuous Polymer Array Tape

Array Tape is a continuous polymer strip, serially embossed with reaction wells in customized volumes and formats including 96- and 384-well arrays. Array Tape is thin (0.3 mm) and flexible, which allows 200 microplate equivalents (76,800 reaction wells) to be spooled onto a single, compact reel. It is a flexible microplate replacement for applications that enables a streamlined lab process.

Reduced Cost Sub-Microliter Reactions

Current applications support sub-microliter reactions (≤ 800 nL). These fluid volumes are significantly less than microtiter plates where the minimum practical reagent volume is approximately 5µL in a 384-well plate. The smaller reaction volumes in Array Tape reduce reagent costs by 80-90% compared to microplate-based systems.

Array Tape not only enables significant increases in throughput due to inline processing, but also dramatically reduces cost per data point.

Douglas Scientific provides clean consumable Array Tape - certified by an outside lab to be RNAse, DNAse, and pyrogen free.
